    I can't seem to find anything on the terminal effects of the HP rounds?

    Wolf Military Classic HPs preform decent. I can't find the writeup over on the AKforum at the moment but they are relatively cheap and are probably the best performing 7.62x39 HPs.

    Hmm ok. I wasn't sure which plant the Military Classic was made at. There was one guy who recently passed away on The AK Forum who was big into ballistic performance with the AK platform. I'll take another look later tonight to see if I can dig up any more info, but you are probably correct.

    I have a strange feeling Wolf might be a little lacking. I'll pick up a box of Winchester in the next few weeks and do an accuracy test for ya.
